I have lived her for almost 4 years and have never actually seen the gophers that mess up my yard - until today - couldn't get a photo but stood very still. This guy measuring about 6 inches long with tiny legs - would pop up and grab some of the weeds and then go back down - once in a while he would eat a little - saw him do this at least a dozen times and that was when I was watching - then he pushed the dirt up to cover the hole! No wonder can never find the holes where the dirt is - now I KNOW their secret! As long as they stay out of the garden - they can stay!
last year's garden - this year smaller.
